Growing Marrow

View the Marrow page

01 Dec 23 Lina Vennix (Australia - temperate climate)
I would like to thank Ken for his advice on 23/9/23 I have successfully grow the marrows and have had to hand pollinate the flowers using a small brush. A lot of the small female fruit have dropped off the plant but so far have 3 marrows growing well. Can you advise how to keep the seeds, at what stage do I collect them?

Don't use a brush just use the male flower to pollinate the female flower as advised. For seed collection let the marrow grow really big then leave it for a couple of weeks then take the seeds out and let dry for a few weeks. Store a cool place or put in a jar and put in the fridge.
